Class NLS

  • Direct Known Subclasses:

    public class NLS
    extends Object
    MessageBundles classes extend this class, to implement a bundle.

    For Native Language Support (NLS), system of software internationalization.

    This interface is similar to the NLS class in eclipse.osgi.util.NLS class - initializeMessages() method resets the values of all static strings, should only be called by classes that extend from NLS (see for reference) - performs validation of all message in a bundle, at class load time - performs per message validation at runtime - see for usage reference

    MessageBundle classes may subclass this type.
